Dating the historical buddha part 2
In philosophical anthropology, the Buddha explains human identity without a permanent and substantial self. The Buddha’s parents were King Śuddhodana and Queen Māyā.
The doctrine of non-self, however, does not imply the absolute inexistence of any type of self whatsoever, but is compatible with a conventional self composed of five psycho-physical aggregates, although all of them are unsubstantial and impermanent. However, after the publication in 1991-2 of the proceedings of the international symposium on the date of the historical Buddha held in Göttingen in 1988, the original consensus on these dates no longer exists. Some of the new dates for the Buddha’s "death" or more accurately, for his parinirvāṇa are: ca. He was a member of the Śakya clan and his name was Siddhartha Gautama.
There are still areas in which there is no agreement among scholars and these include disputes over translations of different key doctrinal terms, reliability of different sources, even the date in which the Buddha was born and died is uncertain.
According to the Buddhist tradition, Gautama was born in Lumbini, now in modern-day Nepal, and raised in the Shakya capital of Kapilvastu, which may have been either in what is present day Tilaurakot, Nepal or Piprahwa, India.Statements like this are found in many books of world history, Indian history and history of religions.If this claim were correct, then it would be the earliest accurate date known in Indian history. He is recognized by Buddhists as an enlightened teacher who attained full Buddhahood, and shared his insights to help sentient beings end rebirth and suffering.Accounts of his life, discourses, and monastic rules are believed by Buddhists to have been summarized after his death and memorized by his followers.
